Ed Emberley is the creator of the Ed Emberley Drawing Book series as well as the classic Go Away, Big Green Monster! He lives with his wife, Barbara, in Ipswich, Massachusetts.From School Library Journal:
reS-K-A newly illustrated version of a 1961 edition. A rhyming text points out some of the places in which basic geometric shapes can be found in life situations. For example, "A circle could be a little green pea,/or eyes in the dark, if you'll just look and see." Although circles, triangles, and rectangles are addressed separately in the text, most of the illustrations are composed of a combination of these shapes. The train with circular wheels pulls a rectangular circus wagon flying triangular flags, etc. The shapes are illustrated with flat, solid colors on a black background, giving a childlike, cheerful appearance appropriate for introducing the concept. Readers who have developed affection for the whimsical, humorous line drawings found in the original may be disconcerted by the new style. However, libraries that do not have the older edition and those looking for a simple, straightforward approach to basic shapes will find this one an attractive option.
